Very interesting piece. This must be one of the first coins ever struck in aluminium.

Heidrun Hoehn Leipzig, a german auction house, they usually auction quite a few Mansfeld pieces and sold one like this a few years ago. The only difference i could find between this and the common one is the one dot vs two dots on the obv. after DO. In any case, probably the only rare Mansfel talers are the early types , the 1520', multiple ones, death talers and of course the top grades and strikes!
His money management skills were good though)
Sadly many of these coins have mount marks, were plugged, poor grades, tooled, so getting a well preserved one, that has a beautiful/interesting theme will be expensive most of the time!
Nice condition for a Charles I crown
Very nice crown of Charles I. It appears somewhat crudely made as is typical of his larger silver coins. Have you any ability to find/research provinances for these early English coins? I've only one English crown sized coin before Victoria but it's an Oxford silver pound of Charles I, 1642. It's pedigreed to the "Rye Collection" which was auctioned by CNG in the US but somebody in England should've owned it before then?
Also it's slabbed by PCGS as "VF details" due to an old cleaning. I'd like to remove it from the slab but it's such a nicely done huge chunk of plastic I hate to destroy it. Still it's be nice to get the coin out. I guess there's not to much need to keep these things in slabs?
Oh a link is here. I've posted it so many times on CT that I'll just post a link this time. https://coinsandhistory.com/countries/Europe_England/England.html
Wow! This is a great piece. Is the dragon intentionally made a bit humanlike to signify the devil perhaps?
I think the dragon is in fact Lucifer!
Thank you! It's from the last Sincona auction! I had to have a Passau taler, plus the city is very nice, hope i'll get to visit it in the future.
I like your Osnabrück Taler but how can the 8 brothers Taler not match your taste ? I think they are among the most charming Talers around.
To be honest i don't like most of the talers of Saxony/Saxe-Weimar, i had a 4 brothers taler and i sold that piece too some time ago!What i like and want to get is an Augsburg confession one and a vicariate issue of Johann Georg II!
Edit. I've just bought a 1664 Brandenburg one with Christian Ernst/ Franconian Circle, a vf , but a coin that i always wanted!
